Hello,
I am working with Windows7 Ultimate 64bit. Dutch Language.
I do have the latest version of the Adobe Reader in the dutch language.
And still is the program this given as unsafe.
The program detected Adobe reader version 9.1.0.163
I did try to download again but the installer told me that the program and that version was allready installed.
Then I did a rescan, to be sure. But it still appeared to be unsafe.
What do I do wrong or is there something else going on ?
Duifje

Please state the installation path for the program.

Is Adobe Reader listed in both Insecure and Patched?

Sometimes using Help>Check for Updates in Adobe Reader helps.

Hello.
You might also like to take a look at post 48 on the Cyberclips thread which goes some way to explain the situation at present:-

Even if you have a fully patched Adobe program it is still vulnerable....until November 15th apparently.
Regards,

You were right it appers to be patched to version 9.4.0.195
So I presume that it is safe, At least so far as this program is safe.
Otherwise we heve to wait untill the next update.
Thanks for your reply.
